Nyle Walton

While a student at the University of Utah, I climbed to the double summit of Twin Peaks over fifty two years ago. Climbing with a classmate, one Jerry DeGettis, It took me almost twelve hours up and down and I remember stumbling along the trail back to my car well after dark. We lunched on the west summit next to the mail box and admired the view that took in the entire Wasatch Range from Mount Ogden to Timpanogos.

I was delighted to see Twin Peaks on the cover of Time Magazine just before the 2002 Winter Olympics. The subsequent gold medal winner in figure skating (Hughes) was depicted doing a triple axel in the sky above Twin Peaks' fishtail crown. Since childhood I have considered Twin Peaks which looms above and behind Mount Olympus the most majestic peak in the Wasatch as it is viewed from downtown Salt Lake City.

PellucidWombatRoute Climbed: Robinson Ridge from Ferguson Canyon Date Climbed: September 18th, 2004  Sucess!


Ascended via Storm Mountain and the full Robinson Ridge, then continued on to do the Triple Traverse and descend via Lake Blanche. A storm front was moving in, and we encountered steady 20-30mph winds with 40-50mph gusts.

I finally did the standard route. Went up w/ the Wasatch Mtn Club. The wildflowers were in full bloom, there were some mountain goats, and the overcast skies kept it from getting too hot. Luckily the thunderstorms held off until later in the day.

PellucidWombatRoute Climbed: Lisa Falls (Little Cottonwood Canyon) Date Climbed: October 18th, 2003  Sucess!


I'd been looking over the canyon above Lisa falls as a way to climb Sunrise pk or the Broads Fork Twins for some time. Since I wanted to do the Triple Traverse, I opted to try finding a way up to the summit of the Broads Fork Twin Peaks from the canyon.

The route I did was great! I have no idea if it is covered in any guidebooks but it is certainly is worthy of such coverage - nice variety in views, climbing terrain/rock, class 4 scrambling, etc. I'll definitely put the route up on this page soon :)

ScottRoute Climbed: Broads Fork, Tanners Gulch, Hounds Tooth to West Summit. Date Climbed: July 1993, March 1998-HTR


Lots of snow both times to East Summit. Hounds Tooth Ridge is the toughest winter climb I have ever done that ended in success.

Had a great trip, did this during the week and didn't run into anyone until half way back down. Also went up into the basin on snow shoes over the winter.

Great hike! It was a record elevation gain on a trail for me. The routefinding was a little tricky, but the views made it well worth it! Definitely one of my favorite peaks in the Wasatch

This was my first time on the summit. Please read the trip report for details. I have since been up the summit several times. It is one of my favorites in the Wasatch.

Challenging climb to one of the great peaks of the Wasatch. Stunning scenery! Prefer Robinson Variation to standard route unless snowfields are present.
